Got a case on sale. Had the wifey pick it up for me and it was like $8 off! SO, I figured..."what the heck" right?! Haven't had one in several years, but remembered that I liked it...so I figured a whole case of these English suds wouldn't go to waste!
Nice "BROWN" color....decent head....good, SMOOTH and slightly sweet flavor. Good flavor yet very drinkable, do to the "thinness" of the ale. They do a good job with this one, I believe. It has flavor...not a TON...but enough...and yet it's still thin and a tad watery for the drinkability. I love it. Wish it wasn't normally like $30 a case though! I'd buy it again..when it's on sale again...and recommend it to anyone who's not a hop-head...'cause this doesn't have a trace of that flower friends! I like it and think you will too! Looks like a freakin' bottle of rootbeer!!!! Neat one to serve dinner guests. Happy sippin' my drunk friends! Saaalute!!!

Disappointing. It says Brown Ale, but it's not brown and you could have given me a Bud Light and I wouldn't have been able to tell the difference in taste.
Appearance was nice I had high hopes, poured a gorgeous deep ruby red/light brown color with a decent sized head.
Smell was disappointing. Malt and hops. Slight smell of wheat bread.
Taste was most disappointing at all. I taste literally nothing. It tastes like I am drinking soda water or beer water. Low carbonation makes it feel very thin and watery. Upon drinking one a night later I taste the skunk.
Overall this is bad. Won't be buying again won't be recommending.
